Meet the 2019 Primary EAL Team

The English as an Additional Language (EAL) department works with students whose first language is not English and who therefore need direct support with English.

English as an Additional Language  (EAL) - BIS HCMC

Our aim is to ensure that all students are able to access the classroom curriculum and thrive within the BIS school community.  

In Primary, we support students from F3 to Year 6 in their mainstream classes as well as withdrawing them to give targeted support for their language needs. We also team teach with class teachers so that all children benefit from the language input.

Our wonderful EAL team will be focusing on enriching our students’ vocabulary, grammar knowledge and English language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) through plenty of communicative activities, games and learning. Together, we look forward to supporting and enhancing the language development for all children across the school, both inside and outside of the classroom.
